Comment

Post frontal winter thermal day where I got a bit too optimistically aggressive and ended with a landout at Stead. Winds ENE 5-15 knots, blue with some cirrus, top of lift over 8,000' when it was good. Got my best climb of the day early to 8,900' off the Dogskins and started heading towards Stead with absolutely nothing but sink afterwards so turned around. After messing around in the warm springs valley tried again and getting to Stead was pretty easy. Making it back wasn't. Started getting pretty low as I got close to stead due to some sink. Spent the next half hour struggling around 6,500' over the higher 5,000' terrain by Stead right around the same time the headwind back to Air Sailing kicked up. Was hoping to find something at the southern foothills of Fred's Mountain to save my ass, but no such luck. Turned back towards Stead before the glide back became sketchy which turned out to be wise as I found some sink on the way back and made it to Stead below pattern height. Thanks to Dodo for the aeroretrieve.
